2014 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Maggie will create a paperback and audiobook collection of non-binary, queer dystopian sci-fi, comprised of pre-existing and yet-unpublished stories from the All That’s Left zine series. The project will be made available online in digital format for free and upon completion, it will be showcased with featured readings and performances. The collection seeks to fill the void of science fiction that speaks to the emotional experience of marginalized communities and allow readers to see the world through a new perspective. Maggie hopes the collection will enable readers to critique power dynamics and inspire them to re-envision our world.
